Saturday Afternoon Cartoons: Betty Boop
Saturday, December 14!
- A caricature of a Jazz Age flapper, Betty Boop originally appeared in the Talkartoon and Betty Boop film series, which were produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures.
- Despite having been toned down in the mid-1930s as a result of the Hays Code to appear more demure, she became one of the best-known and popular cartoon characters in the world.
- She has been featured in comic strips and mass merchandising, and is still an iconic figure to this day.
